What qualifies you for this position?
“I want to bring common sense back to the village of Swansea. I want the people of Swansea to realize that the board is managing their sales and tax dollars, according to the village regulations bound by them. With three TIF and tax districts in place, the businesses in those areas must have the money available to help them maintain and update their business.”
What is the top issue in your race, and how would you address it?
“Keeping the older section of Swansea viable is of prime concern. Providing services to all areas is very important to maintain a healthy community. Budgets are submitted to cover all areas and equipment needed. While the needs are great, money must be spent to cover the best use of the dollars.”
